Seppuku (2016) Short Narrative, Experimental 24 min English USA, Hong Kong
Directed by Daryn Wakasa Pacific NW Premiere
Seppuku is a Japanese-American cinematic folk tale that chronicles the ritual death and rebirth of Mari Yoshimori. It looks through the lens of a psyche molded through generations by the legacy of internment, a tragic event tucked away in the dark corners of Americas past. Its a soul-searching journey to recalibrate a spiritual compass and find new purpose in life.
Mari Yoshimori holds the U.S. record for the fastest 400 meter time in track and field. Shortly before Olympic trials, she learns that she has a potentially career-threatening torn hamstring. This news crushes her soul. Not listening to her doctor or mothers advice, Mari keeps training, and pushes herself too far. So far that the powers of nature thrust her into the depths of a psychological purgatory. While there, she meets her spiritual sidekick, Bettari. Petite, cute and mysterious, she communicates through a handwritten sign as she playfully lures Mari deeper into her domain. Only Mari can decide whether Bettari intends to guide or destroy.
